NBA Schedule 2013-14: League Releases Official Regular Season Slate

Alex KayCorrespondent IAugust 6, 2013

In a one-hour special on NBA TV, the NBA released the complete schedule for the upcoming 2013-14 campaign, giving fans a look ahead to the most anticipated matchups of the season. 

You can view the comprehensive schedule here at, which includes all 82 games for each of the 30 teams in the Association.

It all gets started on Tuesday, Oct. 29, when the defending champion Miami Heat begin their quest for a three-peat by hosting the Chicago Bulls in American Airlines Arena. The team that met the defending champs in the Eastern Conference Finals will also be in action, as the Indiana Pacers welcome the Orlando Magic to the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. 

Opening night wraps up with the battle for Los Angeles, as the Lakers and Clippers face off in the Staples Center. 

December is shaping up to be one of the best months of the season.

On Dec. 4, the San Antonio Spurs and Minnesota Timberwolves will head down to Mexico City to play in front of an international crowd. Three weeks later, the NBA will continue its rich Christmas Day tradition with a marathon of games, many of which have the top players and teams in the league going head-to-head.

Bulls at Nets12 p.m. ET
Thunder at Knicks2:30 p.m. ET
Heat at Lakers5 p.m. ET
Rockets at Spurs8 p.m. ET
Clippers at Warriors10:30 p.m. ET

The most intriguing matchup will surely be LeBron James squaring off against Kobe Bryant in the mid-day tilt. That is, if the Black Mamba is back to his old self following extensive rehab for a torn Achilles.  

Unfortunately, there will be a bit of a lull on New Year's Day, with several lottery teams getting the call to action. 

Mavericks at Wizards6 p.m. ET
Pacers at Raptors7 p.m. ET
Pelicans vs Timberwolves8 p.m. ET
76ers at Nuggets9 p.m. ET
Bobcats at Clippers9:30 p.m. ET

On Jan. 16, the Atlanta Hawks and Brooklyn Nets will shake things up by facing off in London. Just days later, it's back to tradition, as two-thirds of the league's teams take the hardwood to honor Martin Luther King Jr. on Jan. 20. 

Mavericks at Cavaliers1 p.m. ET
Clippers at Pistons1 p.m. ET
Raptors at Bobcats2 p.m. ET
76ers at Wizards2 p.m. ET
Nets at Knicks2:30 p.m. ET
Pelicans at Grizzlies 5 p.m. ET
Heat at Hawks5:30 p.m. ET
Lakers at Bulls8 p.m. ET
Trail Blazers at Rockets8 p.m. ET
Pacers at Warriors10:30 p.m. ET

The final day of the regular season is Wednesday, April 16, with the playoffs starting up on April 19 and running through June until a champion is decided.

2013-14 should be nothing short of another incredible campaign in the National Basketball Association, and fans have plenty to look forward to given the highlights listed above.
